Help! Need DOS Mounter or FormatFive by softarch
« on: March 10, 2016, 07:50:55 AM »
Hello,

I am trying to get my Microtech PCD-47b SCSI card reader recognised by OS 9 and it's not working. I need an old utility program from now defunct developer softarch called DOS Mounter SE.

Unfortunately it cannot be found by the wayback machine.

There used to be an older version called FormatFive by softarch which was later integrated into Dos Mounter. FormatFive might also work with the card reader so if anyone has this software it would also be a massive help. FYI: The only useful post I can find informs me that the Software used to be free but then got bundled with some shitty crapware amazing photo editing program.

Many thanks in advance!

I swear that Mactron just "thinks" about software and it materializes

i am surprised to hear that file exchange cant read those cards. i thought dos mounter was discountinued in 1990 but as it seems the last version is from 2000.

DOS Mounter was bundled by Microtech with the SCSI card reader. The OS recognises the HW in System Profiler but is unable to mount the media without it.
